The University – believe it or not – has recently raised £5,000 for Hospiscare simply by selling bottles, to quote Waterboy, of “some high quality H2O.”

For every bottle of Abbey Well Water sold on campus, Coca Cola Enterprises would donate five pence to the University’s chosen charity, Hospiscare.

The University has been part of the scheme for four years now and have been with Hospiscare for two – a local charity which offers Exeter residents top quality end-of-life care and support.

Hospiscare’s Catherine Rawlinson,  said, “[We are] so grateful for the ongoing support of the University of Exeter.

“They have been fantastic supporters of Hospiscare and we are delighted to receive this generous donation from the sales of Abbey Well water.

“The funds raised by organisations and individuals are essential for Hospiscare so that we can continue to support those with a terminal diagnosis in Exeter, mid and east Devon.”
